Lol D'Man, wouldn't mind an english speaking table no matter where they come from although they would still have trouble understanding my fluent gibberish. The fun has gone from the tables when the Germans have thrown their towels over 6 of the seats and the other two are Rasputin and his psychotic twin who suffers from a Schizoid personality disorder. Yeah Pete maybe you do have a point.

Home games. Make one, choose stakes, structure, name, options, and chat allowances.
Look, I just made one for next Sunday (Oct 23), mixed PLH/PLO, $1.10 buy-in (it's the minimum allowed, the rake goes to Stars, not me :). PM me if you want to play.
Chat rules for the moment are, any language allowed, except Cantonese, but I can always change that on request.

I think we just have to get used to the language issues now.
Have google translate open and check up on them from time to time.

For some reason any time I call a chat mod,they spam and leave just as quick.
I like how they say their name at the start to give a personal flair but after that it is down hill.
They tilt me to no end,so I dont bother!

Volunteer as a mod and use Google Translate to berate them, maybe that would tilt them...

Actually I was proposing you make your own.
If you want to play mine I can allow Cantonese... er no, that I won't... I can change the chat rules to... any English except Liverpudlian?

I'm sure it's frustrating, and I'm sure I'd be reporting the chat as much as the next player...

BUT, if it's as rampant as people have been saying lately, I'd be reporting all of the hands to support@pokerstars.com under "Subject: Possible collusion." Scroll through the previous hands and copy/paste the hand #s. Explain in the email that there had been a lot of non-English chat between players that you want checked out.

If they get enough of those emails that they have to sift through, and they do review them, then they might work on enforcing the chat a bit better.
